Smart Cover, Smart Case or Other? | iPad.AppStorm | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"When I bought my new iPad, I knew that I wanted a Smart Cover, no question about it.

Mark Anderson's Blog » The iPad & Critical Pedagogy

Mark Anderson's Blog » The iPad & Critical Pedagogy | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"I’ll go ahead and say it – I think the discussion on the iPad and Pedagogy needs to go further. Too many posts (and I am guilty of this too) focus on, “check out this cool app”, or “did you know the iPad can do this”; you’ve all seen them. I really feel we are past the time where we should be looking at the functionality of the iPad as a device and be looking at it in a way which ensures we are looking more at how learning can be redefined and modified through the use of the iPad."
